Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics January:
Michael Dexter will give a hands-on demonstration of the FreeNAS NanoBSD-based Network Attached Storage platform on various hardware and a dedicated LAN. FreeNAS is based on NanoBSD, a FreeBSD sub-project for embedded systems and includes support for the ZFS filesystem, Apple AFP clients, Unix NFS clients, Windows CIFS shares, iSCSI targets and useful niceties such as TFTP support.
Bring any systems that you want to test with FreeNAS, particularly Windows ones as Michael does not have any. You are also invited to bring 2GB or larger flash devices suitable for a bootable image.
Some good questions came out of the PLUG General meeting and you are welcome to mail Michael more in advance: [email protected]
